Banksy's second canvas

Banksy is an English graffiti artist who first started by using the streets of the UK as his medium. Now his pieces can be found everywhere, from the wall in Palestine, to a fence in Jamaica. "If Banksy is married to England, then NYC is his drug addled sidepiece whom he occasionally slaps on the ass just to let her know hes still around." said the writer of the Play Cloths blog. His work in NYC really makes this city his second muse.

These can be found around the city:

Grand & Wooster Street

Broadway a block north of Canal Street

Not sure where this one is...

A step away form spray paint and urban cement surfaces, Banksy continues his fight against the Establishment in one of his more recent pieces; an installation.
